Our Review

Such a fun musical read! You just can’t read it–you must sing it!

Packed with beautiful illustrations, The Farmyard Idol by Angie Belcher is a delightful story about musical farm animals that every young child will enjoy. A great read-aloud that will have both child and adult singing and dancing along.

The story follows farmer Fred and his magnificently melodic animals. When farmhand Joe suggests a competition to find which animal is the best, ‘Farmyard Idol’ is considered. A notice advertises the competition and the venue and all the far animals are excited to take their singing enjoyment to the next level. The Hen thinks she is perfect for this title and enters, as Dog, Horse, Rooster, Sheep, and Pig. The animals continue to perform in the ‘Farmyard Idol’ with Fred, his wife Betty and farmhand Joe as the judges. It’s a hard decision as to which animal is perfect! Read the book to find out who wins the prestigious title of “Farmyard Idol”!!

This fun book will also help any child who struggles with self-esteem to understand about his/her own self-worth through the example of Pig. When all the animals are confident and excited to take part in the competition, Pig thinks his voice is not good enough to impress the judges and he is not fit for the title. But what Pig learns with the help of other friendly animals, is that everyone – including him – can sing if they believe in themselves and be confident. This story teaches children to follow their heart, find their individuality and be a star in their own unique way. Also, a great way to help them learn about the name of farm animals!

This book is as cute as it is clever. The descriptive and colorful illustrations grab the reader’s attention and provide many different things for the reader to look at. Especially by the end of the book when all the animals are presented on the page. It allows for the children to practice their animal names as well as the sounds that each animal makes.

Final Verdict

Incredibly catchy! I think a child would probably get up and dance with the animals. Wonderful sound words and repetitive text for young readers. Great read aloud for ages 4 to 8. Cute and The many different sounds that the animals make are very creative and fun.
